Keep/Get Rid Contract Thread

Recommended Posts

Surely the club are going to do an update today on who's been offered a deal and who's away?

We all know their contracts are up today, are we to assume everyone out of contract is a free agent as of tomorrow if we don't hear anything?

I doubt it. Given Hopkin is still on furlough (as far as I know anyway), he technically won't be able to decide who he wants to offer terms to and who he wants to release.

Surely he's been brought off furlough by now precisely to make those decisions before today? Otherwise everyone who's out of contract is going to have no idea whether they'll be getting an offer or not, and who decided to release Ramsbottom?

If we've failed to bring him off furlough to contact players about new deals by now, when their deals expire today, then it's gross negligence from the club.

I don't think for a second he's sitting in the house flicking between xHamster and Loose Women, he will have contacted the players privately and told them. But if the club give an update then it will be solid proof that Hopkin is in breach of furlough rules. 

You're entirely correct though, the management team should be back from furlough at the moment.

That Tele article makes Ramsbottom out to be a solid performer. I'm not saying they need to stick the boot in, but they talk about his penalty saves without mentioning his frequent errors.


Now before Gavin goes, I'd like to ask him one more question.


Do you like Abba?

Anyone with access to WyScout will work out quite quickly that he's pish. If the Tele want to run a puff piece on him then good luck to them.

I would only keep Sutton if he was still a coach. As much as I like him, he’s only good enough to be an emergency last 20 minutes option for us now. 

Why should we allocate any of our limited resources to keeping a reserve team coach around?

The site is supposed to be a place for the extended 'family' of Morton supporters - having an affinity with people that you don't know, because you share a love of your local football club. It's not supposed to be about point scoring and showing how 'clever' or 'funny' you are, or just being downright rude and offensive to people you don't know, because you can get away with it. Unfortunately, it seems the classic case of people who have little standing/presence in real life, use this forum as a way of making themselves feel as if they are something. It's sad, and I've said that before..

 

So, having been on Morton forums for about 15 years I guess, I've had enough... well done t*ssers, another Morton supporter driven away. You can all feel happy at how 'clever' you are

When he was dropped, he was saying that his stats were the best in the country based on number of saves.

Obviously neglecting that all the 'great saves' he palmed straight to an opposition player caused goals.

This talk of Hopkin still on furlough, surely he either isn’t on furlough now or he can be part time furloughed. Don’t believe for a minute that he’s not working.

He will be working from home while still on full furlough I reckon. However that means if the club announce anything regarding players' futures, they run the risk of being accused of breaching the furlough rules.

There won't be a furloughed football manager in the world that hasn't broke. It.

Surely he is back now if others are at the club.

Player/coach. I have zero idea if he’s cut out to coach senior players or wether he even has interest in it though.

Probably not a surprise Kris Doolan leaves the club after his contract expired according to the teles Twitter

Coaching what and whom exactly? There's literally zero role available for him in the current backroom structure if - quite rightly - we're not going to run some regen squad when the first team are only playing 27 league games and there are practically unlimited loan deals available. It is this sort of half-arsed, 'och just give them a job anyway' social club mindset that explains why Greenock Morton can't actually have nice things.

Perhaps in the summer of 2021 we'll need someone to run a reserve squad. Right now, we don't though.

There is absolutely no justification to keeping Sutton around if the Reserve league is cancelled for the season.

They announced that they had offered Cadden a new deal so surely that ship has sailed?

I was going to say that it's beyond belief that by August 1 we've still heard absolutely nothing from the club about offering deals/releasing players from last fucking season and are relying on a drip feed of 'scoops' from the Poundland Pulitzer at the Tele for this information instead but it's actually such a classic Morton communications strategy that we could probably slap a trademark on it by now.

I’d be very happy with that. I wouldn’t read too much into his Dundee spell. Cut short by injury and before that was shunted into a 4-4-2 under their clownshoes manager expected to defend more than he attacked. He’s still very highly rated at Rangers, is their academy player of the year and their highest paid youth player by some distance. He’s lightning quick, and physical as well, and seems to actually know how to use skills effectively rather than show. If we got him and gave him the freedom Dundee didn’t, I think it’d be well worth it.

(Tl;dr, I rate the boy)

Sounds promising, we'll probably stick him at RB.

What is this guy (I've never heard of him) McPake's supposed best position? From the description of his spell at Dundee above it reads like a central attacking midfielder, which would be a slight concern as I can't recall a time when we've actually made that role work for us. If it were the most attacking of a midfield three like we had for most of last season then that would require less of an adjustment.
